As a girl, Clara del Valle can read fortunes, make objects move as if they had lives of their own, and predict the future. Following the mysterious death of her sister, Rosa the Beautiful, Clara is mute for nine years. When she breaks her silence, it is to announce that she will be married soon to the stern and volatile landowner Esteban Trueba.

Set in an unnamed Latin American country over three generations, The House of the Spirits is a magnificent epic of a proud and passionate family, secret loves and violent revolution.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Remarkable...a big book that can comprehend the history of a nation, and so many lives, with love * The Times *
An exotic vision and a brilliant, impassioned epic * Vogue *
Mesmerizing... A novel of force and charm * Washington Post *
This is a novel like the novels no one seems to write anymore: thick with plot and bristling with characters who play out their lives over three generations of conflict and reconciliation. A novel to be read for its brilliant craftsmanship and its narrative of inescapable power * El Pais, Madrid *
Announcing a truly great read: a novel thick and thrilling, full of fantasy, terror and wit, elaborately crafted yet serious and accurate in its historical and social observations * Die Welt, Berlin *

A haunting, lyrical novel which is both a compelling family saga and a searing portrait of a country's history and sudden descent into the terrors of military dictatorship. A book to savour and return to again... More
